Interaction with Guests
We live in the house so we like to interact with the guest to provide information to make their trip to Ecuador a memorable one.
The Dos Mangas valley is lush and tropical but close to Montanita, one of Ecuadors premier surfing and tourist spots, yet far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. We are located 800 meters up the Dos Mangas road about a 15 walk from the beach and a $1.50 cab ride tot Montanita
Taxi cabs and bus's are available

Safe, secure, and quiet. Lots of birds. Great breakfast each morning and conversations with the Bill and Colleen. Great help and advice regarding the local area, places to visit, where to eat, and how to get there. The place was very clean and comfortable. They also provided invaluable info on getting between Guayaquil and Montanita/Manglaralto. In the end they were even kind enough to drive us to the Montanita bus terminal on the day we left.
We were warmly welcomed at Nuestro Paraiso by both Bill and Colleen along with their friendly doggies Pepsi and Hope. My husband and I enjoyed our 2 night stay at their home. Clean room with comfortable bedding, warm showers, wifi, tasty breakfasts and a relaxing hammock. It was a $2 cab ride into Montañita or a nice 30 min stroll along the beach. We highly recommend this airbnb.
Staying at Nuestro Paraíso was really great. It is only 5 minutes from Montañita town (1.5-2$ taxi), which makes it perfect to sleep because town is really loud at night. Room is very comfortable and breakfast is delicious. Finally, Bill and Colleen and excelent guests and really nice people. And their dog Pepsi is just beautiful! Me and my girlfriend loved being there and we highly recommend this place to anyone who goes to Montañita or Manglaralto. Thanks a lot guys, hope to see you again some time!
Bill and Colleen are the definition of hospitality. Their b&b is located on a serene plot just minutes from Montanita and Manglaralto.
They are full of local recommendations (and even helped us coordinate a few excursions).
We appreciated the peacefulness, comfortable accommodations (including a private balcony we didn't expect) and warmhearted hospitality.
Lovely jungle-like surroundings, very helpful & well-informed hosts, delicious breakfasts, and a gentle dog. We were able to plan what to do each day after considering our hosts' daily advice. We needed & appreciated those tips.
The highlight of my trip to Ecuador was staying at Bill and Colleen's place in Manglaralto which is about 5 minutes from Montanita and ten minutes to Olon beach.Bill picked me up from my hostal and brought me to their home. Their house that they had built out of bamboo was beautiful and my room was fantastic. Great bed and hot shower. They were wonderful company and I enjoyed spending time with them and their dog Pepsi. I loved where they were. Far enough away from the craziness of Montanita over the holidays, but close enough to go into Montanita for dinner .Manglaralto also has its own beach which was almost deserted and it was a pleasant ten minute walk Colleen is a wonderful massage therapist as well. They were kind enough to invite myself and another guest to a gringo New Years party. I can't say enough about their hospitality and would definitely recommend their place to any of my friends.
If your looking for a very clean bnb that exceeds North American standards with wonderful hosts look no further. Bill and Colleen were not only incredibly gracious but also a lot of fun. They are very plugged in to the expat community in the montanita area so they can give you all the details of what to do and where to eat etc. From a North Americans perspective. As far as their bnb it's the quintessential Ecuadorean retreat, a structure made of bamboo that has a wonderful open air feel guaranteed to eliminate all stress and make you wonder why on earth you haven't moved to Ecuador yet. It's set back walking distance from the beach but far enough to give you ultimate seclusion and peace. I'd suggest staying to anyone but especially North Americans and Europeans because Ecuador is an amazing place but finding places to stay that have the hot water, working electrical and wifi that we've grown accustomed to is rather challenging, but you won't have that challenge staying here. Basically it's the best of both worlds, the peace, tranquility and magic of Ecuador with the infrastructure of the states or Canada. And what ever you do make sure to have some fresh pineapple for breakfast, they grow it right there in their garden!!! Safe travels
